Winter Fleaology With ROCC Friends

Hi all, its Paula of Flea.o.logy, here to share my latest blog post from My blog.

Here is your promised peek into fleaolgy.

The first three photos are of my booth!  I sold all but three of these globes! 
          This one is Jennine's booth


These two photos are of Keith's booth. 

We had Pyrex piled high! 

          This one is Carla and Sherry's


How cute are the Flamingos in Denise's booth. She's with Two Old Crows!


 This is Joanne's booth!



 It's always fun to see other dealers I associate with, like these girls from the Reclaimologists, Jamie
and Denise.  

More reclaimologists, past and present, Shannon,Jeff and Mandy.

 Here we have Angie and Mark... Angie is 'the American Homemaker'  and Mark is one of the Old Crows!  If this photo had a sound track you'd be hearing "we are not married" over and over.  Still we've all begun to feel like family 
Kathy of Utah weddings, catered our event and had her son run the photo booth...  He was pretty done by the end of the show!
I just thought you might like to see some of the goodies I collected for myself at the show!!!  Fleaology is great for the collection of goodies AND great memories.

  I'd also like to thank my followers who came by and said hi!

In August 2013 I blogged about my father-In-law's house that we had to tear down, see here:

Funeral for a Friend

Now I can re-Blog an update on that property!


Ralph Hitchcock's original historic home
Before



During Demolition


The New and Improved version
After











Ralph repurposed architectural pieces back into the new house


we learned this piece over the windows was called a pediment
shown here used inside the new sunroom

Because the brick was unfired, it was reused on places protected from the elements like the porch and 
interior walls of the sunroom




Unused brick was sold to a local brick mason 
to be used in the new 
Provo City Center Temple



These two pieces are now in the new stairway 
they were salvaged from the 
Springville South Main street 
chapel that was destroyed by fire
Ralph had been an LDS Bishop there


You may recognize some of these reused and reclaimed things from the old house

Mormon Oak mirror - Reading Chair Throne - Built In cabinet

On the fridge in Ralph's house is a note, typed by his mother on her old typewriter from her house in Buhl, Idaho: 
"Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without." 
These are words he believes and obviously lives by.

Ralph reads to one of the Lads

It was unfortunate to lose a historic part of the community, but fun to rebuild a home that is now a tribute to the old with many old things made new again!





Thanks for Letting me share.
You'll find my crazy brand of 
reclaimology at the Rusty Ranch 
in Spanish Fork.
